During the COVID-19 pandemic, churches and places of worship had at times been ordered to close to the public and engage with their communities in new ways. Many have been providing services, gatherings, prayer and song through Zoom and livestreams on Sundays and throughout the week.
After months of adapting to the new normal, faith-based services are again allowed to organize in person with modifications and limited capacity, but continue to provide outdoor as well as remote services. In Malibu, many faith communities are currently providing virtual and on-site services.
